5th Maryland Infantry Regiment

Attached to the main body of the Army of the Potomac as part of the 3rd Brigade, 3rd Division, 2nd Army Corps, the 5th Maryland Infantry fought with that command in the battle of Antietam, being on that part of the field known as the "Bloody Lane," where the regiment lost 39 killed and 109 wounded. Some idea of the severity of this part of the battle may be gained from the fact that the commanding officers were all wounded and carried from the field. The battle honors of the regiment include Antietam, Charlestown, Winchester, the siege of Petersburg, the assault on the Confederate works at Petersburg during the mine explosion which became known as the "Battle of the Crater," the Second Battle of Fair Oaks, and the occupation of Richmond. The 5th Maryland Infantry were the equal of any regiment in the Union army for bravery and devotion to duty. During their service they lost 64 killed, while 97 died of wounds and disease.
